The Mission of SAFE KIDS New London County is to protect children ages 14 and under from motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian injuries, bicycle collisions, drowning, fire and scald burns, poisoning, choking, and firearm accidents through a multifaceted approach of increasing public awareness, providing education and advocating for environmental and public policy changes. SAFE KIDS New London County is now operated by Child and Family Agency and is working to build a broad based group of community leaders whose goals are to increase public awareness of unintentional injuries to children, implement safety programs in the community, evaluate safety programs, participate in public policy initiatives, and obtain local media coverage and recruit new members and collaborative partners.
